5:15 am
blindfolds on us, rags on our faces that they wrapped around with clear tape that were bound pretty tightly. it was us, it was a crew from sky news and journalists from buzzfeed. then they drove us to an undisclosed location an hour away, it turned out to be some kind of factory warehouse and they pulled us out of the car and had us put our hands above our heads, pushed us against our wall, frisked us, took everything off us, separated the women in one room and the men in another. so i was with correspondent clarissa ward and female interpreter for buzzfeed and the men were in another room. >> you must have been scared out of your wits. i can't even imagine, what was that like and how long were you held and were they okay? did they treat you okay? >> reporter: i think any total it was only about 3 or 4 hours but it felt like a full day and there were some moments that were scary. >> reporter: they were asking
5:16 am
scary. >> they were rough with us at the beginning and tell us that everything was going to be okay. when you're blindfolded in a room where you don't know where you are it's hard to be encouraged by that. >> we report every day on what's going on out there. but you're seeing it firsthand. what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, i think it's hard -- it's hard in washington and in america to understand that what's happening here isn't -- they are not taking orders from russia. they are not taking orders from ukraine. these are local residents with uniforms and guns and they are doing things on their own. so when a deal is struck with ukraine and russia, it has no impact on the ground here. these residents are saying, nobody is negotiating with us so we are just protecting our own state. >> well, you tweeted shortly after your release, taken hostage by self-defense forces. what are self-defense forces? >> reporter: that's what they call themselves. they are the guys who are protecting [ indiscernible ] in the [ indiscernible ] region in
5:17 am
this part of ukraine and they are the ones who have taken it upon themselves like some of the people in crimea to become the new patrolling force out here and what they say seems to go. >> and what is next for you, erin? are you coming home? are you going back to work? are you going to take a few days off? and where are you right now? >> reporter: we're back in donesk in our hotel. we'll talk about the next stems. we'll stay and cover the referendum in a couple of weeks and see where it goes. you know, we didn't make any decisions today that were dangerous. we made normal decisions. we just happened upon an unlucky situation. so it will make us think twice but we're all okay and i think we're happy to cover this. >> how long -- you were captured, you were held three hours, how long did the whole process take? >> i think -- they took my watch so i don't -- i don't know. i think it was, uhm, probably 10 in the morning when it started and we were back if the
5:18 am
car by about 2:30. so not a long time but when you are sitting in the dark, it can go on forever. >> erin, your work over there is so important for us here and so we appreciate that and we also again are happy that you are all okay. >> thank you so much. >> all right. erin, thanks. 5:18 right now. let's get a check on the roads. >> liz, take it away. >> reporter: i want to tell you about bart once again. if you are planning on riding it this morning, san leandro is once again our problem spot. if you have switching issues, they had the same issue yesterday around this time of the morning. so right now, there are delays about 5 to 10 minutes on all bart lines passing in and out of that san leandro station. everything else is on time including ferries, caltrain and ace train number one. i know lawrence will talk about the fog. we have one dense fog advisory this morning for the golden gate bridge. so a heads up between marin county and san francisco if you are traveling 101. and we have also been on and often the phone with chp this morning trying to figure out
5:19 am
when this macarthur maze roadwork is clear. we finally got the "all clear" so westbound 580 to eastbound 80 is back open. that connector ramp has been open since 5 a.m. and a live look at 580 through the dublin interchange, everything looks great obviously no big delays yet through the livermore valley heading into pleasanton. that could change here shortly. but good to go for now. the san mateo bridge moving at the speed limit so far out of hayward. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." more on our foggy friday forecast. here's lawrence. nice to see the fog roll back in the heat wave ending. much cooler temperatures especially along the coastline and just inside the bay today still warm in the valleys. the fog has made a return, the sea breeze will pick up throughout the day. much cooler temperatures in some spots especially approaching the coastline. yesterday we topped out at 92 in san jose. 78 in half moon bay. 89 in oakland. and 84 degrees in san francisco. today we are going to drop off a good 11 to 12 degrees outside
5:20 am
and around much of the sites you will see that sea breeze blowing and more fog is on the way for the weekend, too. in fact, it looks like a major cooldown toward the weekend. these temperatures as much as 20 to 25 degrees cooler as we head toward saturday and sunday. high pressure now sliding eastward. that fog and that sea breeze starting to roll in and that means we are in for cooler weather. around the state, 90s into the central valley. you will see about 84 degrees in yosemite. computer models picking up on some of that patchy fog and, well, it's going to try and clear out but i think it will linger near the coastline today and then really surge onshore later tonight into early tomorrow morning. so temperatures coming down today warm away from the immediate coastline, mid-80s into san jose but 60s along the coastline. 80s inland. then inside the bay you're looking at temperatures in the 60s and the 70s. next couple of days temperatures back to normal partly cloudy sunday night into monday with a slight chance of showers north of the golden gate bridge. but that sea breeze, that is going to feel very nice today after several hot days. >> good sleeping weather, too.

sunglasses behind. the bluetooth can be charged by solar power which i think is pretty cool. and the glasses will be available in six designs. they are expensive costing about $350. but frank and michelle, as you said if you are anything like me you lose your glasses a lot it could be worth. >> it needs to tell you where they are. >> that's true. >> reporter: as soon as you get about 20 feet away, that's when it sends you a text. >> good. >> reporter: hopefully there aren't too many places. >> mine end up at the bottom of a lak a lot! no! yes. see you later.

producer was released after being taken hostage in ukra that producer... just a few hours ago, a cbs news producer was released after being taken hostage in ukraine. she spoke with us about her short ordeal. >> there were some scary moments. they asked us if we had children and families and we were wondering why they were asking us that. they were rough with us at the beginning and then toward the end they would give us tea and tell us that everything was going to be okay but, you know, when you're blindfolded sitting on a hard chair in a
5:46 am
room that you don't know where you're, it's hard to feel encouraged by that. >> lyall said the ordeal lasted about four hours. she said she and the others are going right back to work. a controversial pension cost-cutting measure is being delayed in san jose. measure b was approved by the voters nearly 4 years ago. kpix 5 reporter kiet do joins us now at san jose city hall to explain why implementation is being put off. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. employees were bracing for smaller paychecks this summer. they are now breathing easier now. measure b was set to go into effect on july 1 and they would have to pay more into their pensions. the judge delayed it by a year. that has labor unions claiming a small victory. voter passed measure b in 2010 to rein in skyrocketing pensions forcing the layoffs of police officers, firefighters, staff and closing fire
5:47 am
stations. chuck reed still defenses measure b saying it saved the city more than $20 million. >> cost savings are important to restoring services. our retirement costs continue to go up by millions of dollars this year and getting control over those skyrocketing costs is a key to putting our city on a good fiscal foundation. we have managed to reduce them somewhat with the savings that the voters approved. there's more we need to do. but we will wait until we finish with litigation before we can move ahead. >> it's not easy for any politician especially chuck reed to say i'm sorry but the city agreeing to not implement measure b is an overt admission that it's time for a new direction in san jose. >> reporter: the city still has the right to cut salaries and they have been. in response, police officers, firefighters and other employees left in droves to other cities. san jose then restored some of the pay to keep them from quitting. both sides continue to battle it out in court. it's unclear whether or not they will resolve these differences over measure b by next year's deadline.
